American Pie (1999)
It might not be surprising that the MPAA initially gave an NC-17 to this teen sex comedy. But reportedly, the main bone of contention wasn’t the film’s naughty language or the climactic devirginification montage — it was the sequence where protagonist Jim has a moment with an apple pie. The filmmakers were instructed to trim a few pie thrusts. (Wouldn’t you love to read an MPAA memo?) —Darren Franich
